My top rated face masks

I love a good face mask. There's something super indulgent about lathering on a face mask and lighting a candle (a glass of wine is also a must!). They are super effective at soothing specific skin issues - such as dryness, irritation or blemishes.

I have oily, slightly dehydrated, combination skin. As such, I always have a clay mask and a hydrating mask in my arsenal.

My two favourites are the Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque and the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

I have used a lot of clay masks in my time and none have worked so effectively as this Kiehl's mask. On first use I couldn't believe how small my pores were afterwards! I've got both my sisters hooked on it too.

It's also a big jar that should last six months to a year, so it's good value for the price. It's a great blemish fighter and helps to keep pesky blackheads at bay.

The Origins mask is another fabulous find. I've used this regularly for two years (note to self: check the used by date) and it's still going strong.

It's designed to be an overnight mask, which is how I usually apply it, or you can wash it off after 15 minutes.

It's the perfect mask when you're feeling a little dry or dehydrated - especially in these cooler months - and it doesn't clog your pores at all.

Both of these masks are essential for keeping my combination skin in check and are a real treat to use.
